The medications are fine, but your hallucinations are not controlled. So you need a revision of prescription, consult your psychiatrist. He will be able to help u. If all 4 years the symptoms have not remitted, with adequate dosage, there are medications for resistant hallucinations. All the best.

Life without medicine is a dream for patients taking medicine for sleep. But it is possible to left the medicine with balanced diet. First ready to take plenty of fruits, coconut and exercise. Daily take two glass of normal water with lemon and no coffee or tea. The best method is to be physically active while leaving the medicine. Not a very difficult task but it will take 20 days to left the medicine completely. I guarantee nobody else other then me help you to leave in a very comfortable way. I have done lots of research for this.

Hi, one of my close friend's mom is suffering from auditory hallucinations for the more than a week. Most of her talks/hearings are somewhat related to past conflict. Monday they met homeopathy/ayurveda and they suggested for ayurveda tablets/syrup (saraswatharistam and manasamithira vadagam). She was taking ayurveda tablets for 2 days. Since its getting worst and her health would not allow her to wait for few more days to see the response for homeopathy/ayurveda tablets, wednesday night they met psychiatric in chennai. Doctor suggested (psychosis) for a tablet 'olimelt 5 mg' at night (8-8: 30 pm) for 20 days. If she is not getting sleep still, then they suggested to take 'zolfresh 5 mg' at around 11: 30 pm. 1st day (wed night): took olimelt 5 mg around 10 pm, slept around 1 am and woke up around 8 am. 2nd day (thurs night): thursday day time slept for 30 mins. Took olimelt around 8: 45 pm, did not get sleep till 10: 10, started blaberring/crying after that. So gave zolfresh 5 mg, then slept from 12 am-8 am. 3rd dy (friday night-yesterday): friday day time didn't sleep, took her outside. Took olimelt around 8 pm, had meditation for 45 mins, slept around 10: 15 pm. Woke up by 12 am, and blaberring for an hour. So gave zolfresh 5 mg by 1 am, then slept from 2 am till 8: 30 am. Would like to request experts opinion on the below. - can she take both psychiatric tablet and ayurveda medicines together? Would it help for faster recovery? - any other suggestion for faster recovery (like food habits, yoga, meditation, oil bath. Etc)? - in google, its mentioned that "zolfresh 5 mg" has a side effect of hallucinations. Understand this tablet is for deep sleep, but have a fear about this side effect bec. Our main problem is itself hallucinations only - we are trying our level best to divert her, but sometimes it works, most of the times don't. What to do for that - based on above day by day things, are we in a positive direction or we need to speed up the treatment by getting second opinion? How long her body/brain will take to respond for these tablets? When can we expect the slight positive change on this health issue? - there are other suggestions like consulting neurologist, siddha (parallel treatment), acupuncture. Do you recommend any of those at this point of time or wait for sometime to see the response for current medicines? - which treatment would be the best one for this kind of health issue? Any prompt response would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

You need to have a valid prescription and regular review when taking olimelt (olanzapine). There are also many other good companies if the particular brand is not available, consult your psychiatrist for the same. Periodic weight measurement, blood sugar and lipid levels need to be monitored. Usually this medicine is used for initial control and later changed to others, depending on the condition. Do not keep giving the medicine, thinking it is only for sleep on your own. Hope this info helps.

It is not good continue medicine. It leads side effects. Better to come out from medicine. For depression psychological counselling will helps very much. I think you never attend for counselling. Strong counselling sessions are required. Use the medicine whenever you feel normal then leave it. It is best as soon as possible you should come out from the medicine. Years together you use your mind addicted to medicine. Suppose in future you cannot sleep properly without medicine. It is always better to come out from the medicine. Better to come out from yourself. Share the internal feelings and depressive thoughts to your close friends and family members. Better to change yourself. Control your depressive thoughts. If not possible yourself take the help of psychologist. Do not depend on medicine. Must and should conditions only we go to medicine. Better to come out yourself from this stage. It is always best. Ok best of luck.

Dear lybrate-user, the tablet you are using is used for bipolar disorder and must have been prescribed by a psychiatrist, it will be ok to meet your doctor again and confirm the requirement. Do not change or stop the medicine on your own.
